Siphosakhe Ntiya-Ntiya has finally broken his silence following his departure from Kaizer Chiefs, explaining why he was not satisfied at the Soweto giants.

The defender was among the 12 players who were released by Amakhosi and he has since joined Sekhukhune United along with Daniel Cardoso.

So much was expected from the left-back when he was promoted to Chiefs from the junior ranks in 2018.

The 25-year-old made 54 appearances for Amakhosi, but says he was not entirely happy with how things turned out at the club.

Ntiya-Ntiya was part of the Chiefs side that went to two finals, the Nedbank Cup in 2019 and the CAF Champions League last year.

“I think every player, regardless of the club, wants to play week in and week out for his team.

That is what makes us happy as players,” Ntiya-Ntiya said in the latest Soccer Laduma, edition 1288.

“But we’ve also got to be realistic that things will not always happen as per one’s wish and that’s why I’m saying I was not satisfied, and the only reason for that is that I would have loved to play more, just like any other player would want that.

“It wasn’t my decision [to leave the club], and even if I still wanted to stay, a decision had already been made.

I don’t regret anything, and I just have to be proud of whatever I managed to do and achieve.

“Whether I contributed to the team’s improvement or messed up, that I don’t know.

I am just appreciative of the opportunity that I got to play for the team, and that’s all.

Sometimes it’s better to look at things in a positive way than negatively.”
